I would like to obtain more info on my gt-gt-gt-gdparents, Harvey & Susannah Jones of Elmira, Tioga Co, NY. Their son, Samuel Jones, of Cairo, Greene Co, NY (& post 1855, of Ithaca, Richland Co, Wis), was born somewhere in NY State on July 13th, 1820. According to Samuel's 1899 Wisconsin Death Record, he was born in New York & his father, Harvey Jones, came from Wales. His mother, Susannah, maiden name unknown, was born in New England. Some of my Grandmother's cousins believe Susannah's maiden name was Goslee. The only Harvey Jones that I could find in the 1820 New York Census was the one at Elmira in Tioga County (now part of Chemung Co). He was aged 30-40 yr, as was his wife. Also residing in the same household was an elderly woman, aged 70 to 80. Also 2 males under the age of five, & one, 5 to 10 yr old; also 1 female under the age of five, i female 5-10 yr, & another, 10-15 yr. I wasnt able to find a Harvey Jones in the 1830 NY Census, but I did find a Susannah Jones living not too far away at Owego in Tioga Co, but cannot locate the particulars. I know of no other siblings of Samuel Jones, who married in Greene County, Aug 24, 1845, Mary Ann Belinda Van Tassel (b NY, Dec 10, 1826; d Little Willow, Town of Ithaca, Richland Co, WI, June 11, 1882), daughter of Matthias Van Tassel Jr (1791-1868), by his 1st wife, Phebe Evory (1797-1827), eldest daughter of Obadiah & Alche Evory of Durham, Greene Co. I would be most appreciative for any info. Cheers! Count Caragata
